New compilation album coming out in February with a lot of strong names. Not all trance persay but a number of them are. First 2 tunes in the previews are what I'm most keen on, I think.

https://soundcloud.com/familiarstrangersbristol%2Fstrangertogether

Bristolian-based producer Remotif has lovingly curated a selection of tunes from some of his favourite producers for Stranger Together, a VA compilation aimed at raising funds for the International Rescue Committee (IRC).

IRC is currently assisting with emergency resettlement for Afghan refugees. Afghanistan is the single country most at risk of deteriorating humanitarian crises in 2022, and 100% of the profits from this release will provide uprooted families with tents, clean water, sanitation and other basic necessities.

This 11 track release taps into a diverse selection of dancefloor tracks from producers across the world, offering everything from uplifting melodic house to dark, psychedelic techno - and everything in between.

VÉRE leads the charge, easing the listener in with a salvo of ethereal pads and breakbeats on Only Just, before passing the baton on to Maara for her dark and trippy roller 282 Going All The Way Up. Dylan Forbes drops shimmering house number Feels Like, which segues nicely into the effervescent uptempo sparkle of Manami’s Sunbeams.

Remotif’s emotive, Final Fantasy-inspired The Golden Shiny Wire of Hope continues this uplifting energy before giving way to DJ Life’s trademark Aussie tech-prog funk with The Barrens. Alphonse’s Still Eye offers a propulsive, skitterish breakbeat workout and Ciel & Roberto switch things up with the bass-heavy machine groove of Deep FM.

Ramu’s Nothing Else To Do adds a dash of hyperkinetic acid and LUXE’s Level Up hits hard with some truly stomach-churning basslines. To round off the compilation, Boulderhead deploys his trademark flavor of lean, wiggy trance-not-trance with Leaf Power Up.

Reflex Blue - Back 2 Earth. Think this is his debut? He played a pretty solid guestmix a while back.

One of my favorite livesets of last year is back up - I think the owners of the SC page forgot to pay for Pro Unlimited. Mix of stuff in the 1st hour, mostly trance in the 2nd.

ki ya tori - jo. Maybe not strictly trance but has trancelike elements. I really like these guys, they've got a very intriguing style that I'm not sure how to describe. Sometimes closer to hypnotic techno, sometimes too percussive and driving to be just that.

Self-promo again, shoot me, but I "won" (there was a technicality - another mix had more votes but it only had 2 or so actual "trance" tracks, the rest was Cattaneo-style prog and Drumcode) the r/trance best of 2021 mixcomp with a mix that totally belongs here. Granted, I basically ripped the last 40 minutes from my other best of year mix.

Two other mixes from that comp that also deserve to be posted here and listened to:

https://soundcloud.com/soccernamlak%2Fthe-ha-long-bay-mix
^ finished 2nd

https://soundcloud.com/camwin8%2Fthis-was-released-in-2021-end-of-year-mix
^ finished 3rd

Really shows how people's tastes have been leaning the past year, even on r/trance, which I'd say on average has a bit more standard/mainstream tastes.
